A fruitful week for sustainable palm oil in Latin America

Proforest staff from around the globe recently joined our team in Cali, Colombia, for a week brimming with exciting new developments for the world of responsibly sourced palm oil in Latin America and beyond.

Despite often being more widely associated with the agricultural landscapes of Southeast Asia, the palm oil sector has recently seen increasing investment in Latin America. It is important that efforts are made to develop palm oil responsibly, without causing negative environmental and social impacts.

Our recent work in Cali, Colombia sought to ensure that this is the case. Beginning with workshops for palm oil smallholder group managers, the week then progressed on to the 7th RSPO Latin America conference which provided some excellent insight into opportunities for responsible palm oil production and sourcing in Latin America. The week was brought to a close with the delivery of the RSPO for Producers training course.
